ARTIST IN VACANCY
ARTIST IN VACANCY 2018
The Newburgh Community Land Bank (NCLB) believes we have a unique role in community revitalization. NCLB’s goal is to eliminate barriers to redevelopment that go beyond property renovation and sale alone. By opening NCLB properties as temporary platforms for creative interventions, we look to transform our liabilities into sites for engagement: safe, accessible spaces which draw the public experience inside the vacancy and bring life back to marginalized spaces of underserved neighborhoods in the city.
NCLB’s Artist in Vacancy pilot is a creative initiative to make use of the properties in our holdings that have proven the most difficult to transfer or sell. We have selected properties in our core neighborhood to offer as sites for creative work that will engage the community and promote arts & cultural production in the City of Newburgh.
